Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"Once upon a time I got sold a dream: I would grow up big and strong, marry a blonde (my mother was convinced of this), have children, and live happily ever after in a big house, whilst I held down a job as an astronaut. Or a train driver. Or a fireman. And this wasn't a 'maybe' - something to aspire to - this was my God given right. This is what was going to happen. All I had to do was wait.

Not that I was very good at waiting. I'm still not very good at waiting! I wanted this idyllic life now. I didn't want to wait until next week or some other distant point in the future."

A newer edition of this title is available elsewhere on Amazon.com.

About the Author

Peter Jones started life as a particularly rubbish Graphic Designer, followed by a stint as a mediocre Petrol Pump Attendant. After that he got embroiled in the murky world of credit cards until a freak accident with a zip zap machine (remember those?) restructured his DNA at the molecular level and gave him entrepreneurial powers.

Now, when Peter's not filling his days with the things he laughably calls work, he's writing. Even as we speak he's finishing up his debut novel, snappily entitled "The Good Guy's Guide to Getting Girls". It's good stuff. Honest.

Peter lives just a few miles outside London with his cat CJ, who's possibly the smartest animal never to have appeared in a cartoon. From his window he can see France and the Eiffel Tower. Or is that Canvey Island Oil Refinery?

He doesn't own a large departmental store and probably isn't the same guy you've seen on the TV show Dragons' Den.

Peter Jones started professional life as a particularly rubbish graphic designer, followed by a stint as a mediocre petrol pump attendant. After that he got embroiled in the murky world of credit card banking. Fun times.

 

Nowadays, Peter spends his days writing, or talking about writing.

He is the author of five popular self-help books on the subjects of happiness, dating and dieting. If you’re overweight, lonely, or unhappy – he’s your guy.

He’s also written three novels; a Rom-Com (Romantic Comedy), A Crim-Com (Crime Comedy), and a Rom-Com-Ding-Dong (A sort-of Romantic-ish Comedy, with attitude). He’s currently working on his fourth novel, which - if it’s a musical - he’ll no doubt describe as a Rom-Com-Sing-Song. (Spoiler: It isn’t).

 

Peter doesn’t own a large departmental store and probably isn’t the same guy you’ve seen on the TV show Dragons’ Den.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! A Life Shifting book full of REAL PRACTICAL tools!
By Maeby Lopez on August 27, 2019
Peter puts to words what we all wish we had learned in school... How to do... LIFE!
If you struggle with time management, goal setting, positive thinking or feeling STUCK, this book will give you very practical advice on how to unstick yourself!

You will learn how to organize your time using easy, modern tools. How to fill your schedule with things you actually WANT to do. How to reward yourself and motivate yourself to achieve the life you want, and ultimately make time for more HAPPINESS!

I have read so many self-help books but this one really stands out. Peter will have you laughing with his approachable language. This book was written by a REAL person for REAL people. (Not a textbook snoozefest.)

I found this book at the library but soon purchased a copy for reference as I continue to work with the tools provided. I would buy this book for all of my friends! Everyone can benefit from these ideas. Can't say enough nice things! I am changed.

Do yourself a favor and don't hesitate. Worth every last penny. Get started on changing YOUR life for the better. No one else is going to do it FOR you. But hey, this book can help!
